Paris 1920s. Marguerite, Baronne Dumont may have married her husband George for his title (and he for her money) but she genuinely loves him and her horribly misplaced musical ambition is to make him proud - even though she sings tragically. Her social circle (who enjoy her lavish hospitality) and her husband indulge her fantasy and haven’t the heart to break hers by telling her the truth, especially as she’s helping raise money for war orphans. The problem begins when she decides to perform in front of a real audience.
